Maternity

The Fiona Stanley Hospital maternity service is provided by midwives, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals with the support of neonatology and all related specialties.

We focus on providing a woman-centred model of care. Our service provides care for low risk women, through to care for women with complex medical and obstetric problems.

Care is provided through our outpatient medical and midwifery antenatal clinics, as well as inpatient wards, the birth suite and the Maternal Fetal Assessment Unit (MFAU).

FSH provides care to all women who live in our postcode catchment area. Use your postcode (Healthy WA) to find out if you can be referred to our maternity service at Fiona Stanley Hospital.

To receive maternity care at FSH you will need to be referred by your General Practitioner (GP).

FSH has a commitment to providing GP shared care. Please discuss this with your doctor to find out if you are suitable for this type of care.

We also offer specialist consultation and referral to all women in the south metropolitan area with medical conditions including increased BMI and diabetes in pregnancy requiring Insulin management.

Complex fetal medicine services, including births under 30 weeks, are not provided at our hospital and will be transferred to King Edward Memorial Hospital.

Please note:
Although you may have been referred to FSH and have attended antenatal clinics at FSH, you may not necessarily deliver at our hospital. This will be determined by the demand on our maternity unit on any given day. In the event that you cannot be accepted by our maternity unit, you may be directed to another maternity hospital.
